Random Hearts | 1999 | R | - 5.5.6

[2:13]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Some sexual innuendo and kissing. A couple have sex with kissing; also, a man and woman undress each other (we see his bare chest and her panties and bare back) and then we see him lying on top of her in bed while kissing (they are obviously nude but no nudity is visible). A couple kisses passionately and grab at each other's clothed crotches.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A man is shot twice; we see a bullet tearing through his leg (blood is visible on his leg and hand). We see the wreckage of a plane a couple of times, and body bags being taken out. A fistfight with kicking, punching (many times to the abdomen) and one person being hit with a chair; also, a woman hits a man's arm and bites his hand as they grapple in a car, a man hits another in the face, a man throws another against a car and a bowling ball is thrown into a man's stomach. A car rams the back of another car. A man threatens another with a gun. An open-eyed corpse with a bloody face and neck is seen twice; also, we see two corpses underwater and two corpses' faces on a monitor (one of the faces is bruised). A puddle of blood is shown in a dumpster.

LANGUAGE 6 - Two F-words, some anatomical references, a few scatological references and many mild obscenities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Adultery, politics, law enforcement, betrayal.

MESSAGE - The quest for the truth is always important.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
